Space Loses 18th District Seat

by George Hiotis on November 3, 2010

Republican challenger Bob Gibbs has defeated democratic incumbent Congressman Zack Space in a closely watched House race.  Gibbs, a State Senator, won Tuesday in a race Republicans targeted to gain a majority in the Presidential swing state.  The at times bitter race included a ruling by the Ohio Elections Commisison saying Space falsely claimed in a TV ad that Gibbs voted for a pay raise for himself but failed to vote for tax breaks for average Ohioans.
